Kidstown Water Park is one of Toronto’s most popular outdoor water facilities for preschool and grade school children. The City is planning to update the existing equipment through state-of-good-repair improvements to provide a safer and more accessible experience for park users.

Project Timeline

  • Fall 2020 to Winter 2021: Conceptual design and public consultation phase
  • Winter 2021 to Fall 2021: Technical design and construction procurement phase
  • Spring 2022 to Spring 2023: Construction phase

The timeline is subject to change.

L’Amoreaux Kidstown is the City’s only owned and operated waterpark. It is the most popular outdoor aquatic facility in the City, enjoyed by kids and families from all across Toronto. It has come time to replace this iconic destination and revitalize its surroundings to ensure the water park is in good working order for many summers to come. The redesigned water park will be a dynamic, accessible, safe, and exciting space that will better serve existing and new park users.

The project may include the following:

  • Redesign and replacement of the water park/splash pad
  • Expanded parking and queueing areas
  • New and improved changing facilities and washrooms
  • Enhanced spaces for permit use
  • Shade structure(s)

November 2020

After consulting community members about what they would like to see in the Kidstown Redesign, three design options have been developed. The design options are more substantial than what the City originally budgeted for. As we get more feedback from the community during this phase of engagement, the water park design will continue to develop, and a clearer picture of budget needs will emerge. The project team will work throughout this process to find additional budget to cover costs while limiting the design where necessary to stay within an attainable budget.

The designs presented are proposals only and are subject to change as we continue to collect community feedback and form a clearer picture of project costs.  Visit the Get Involved section to learn how to submit your feedback.
